Most virtual reality gamers, including ourselves, don’t have any major demands to have a good time in VR> All it takes is a decent-looking game with a proper story, solid movements and a great atmosphere. Unfortunately, there are far too many games which fail in nearly all of those areas. SuperHyperCube is thankfully one of those games which does all of these things quite well. The game is available on PlayStation VR right now.
SuperHyperCube is an Intense and Wickedly fun Game
When first running the game, players are overwhelmed by the visuals and music, but in a good way.The user controls the camera in this game with their head, which certainly takes some time getting used to. In fact, one would wonder why there is no native controller support, as the game doesn’t necessarily need a VR environment to shine. In our opinion, it certainly makes things a lot more interesting and challenging.
As the name of the game somewhat suggests, the objective is to rotate a cluster of cubes so that its silhouette matches a hole in the wall.This may sound like it is a game designed for toddlers, but rest assured it is a lot more challenging than a line of text can express. The first few puzzles serve as a way to get players accustomed to the controls and don’t take much effort to complete. Things become more difficult gradually, as more cubs are added and deciphering the hole isn’t always straightforward. This doesn’t get frustrating, though, but it poses a nice challenge.
This is also where the head-based camera controls come into the picture. As you progress in SuperHyperCube, you will need to rotate the camera around to find the hole and required shape. Speaking of rotating, the walls within the game will rotate as well. This makes things even more challenging, to say the least. There is a slow-motion tool to make sue for some additional time to solve the puzzle. However, skipping this mechanic will reward you with a bomb meter filling up, which blows up an incoming wall when completely full. It’s a nice bonus to make things a bit easier or harder, depending on the type of player.
SuperHyperCube is one of those games which can help kill hours of time without any problem. There aren’t too many rules tt take into account and the controls are easy enough to get the hang of. Every game also has randomly generated levels, which makes provides a high replayability factor. It is one of the more impressive puzzle games we have seen to date, and we can only hope to see more of these projects in the future. The game certainly has a lot of potential to say the least, but some players may get frustrated after a while.
